Decorating a home is a complicated process full of Big Questions: Is this rug “me”? Should my coffee table be wood or glass? Where on earth do I store 40 pairs of shoes?! With seemingly endless options available for everything from towel racks to sconces, making decor decisions can be overwhelming at best (and occasionally downright paralyzing). Thankfully, there’s an easy way to cut down on the confusion: Look to the stars—or more specifically, the world of astrology—for guidance. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or snagging a gift for a treasured friend, our Zodiac-inspired shopping guide will point you to the just-right pieces for everyone from sensitive Cancer to adventurous Sagittarius.

Aquarius (Jan 21 – Feb 19)

Cactus bathtub planter by Happy Planters, $25.99
Trend-setting Aquarians will love this vintage-inspired ceramic planter—perfect for showcasing their stylish succulents.

Pisces (Feb 20 – March 20)

Shio Kosho salt and pepper shakers by Charm Ceramics, $30 for the pair
A set of sweet salt and pepper shakers are exactly what kind, generous Pisces needs when hosting their next dinner party (in a friend’s honor, of course).

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Cacti coasters by Clive Roddy, $28
Creative Aries needs home details as inventive and confident as they are. These cactus coasters, which can fit together in all sorts of clever configurations, were pretty much made for them.

Taurus (April 21 – May 21)

Catch-all tray by Hook and Stem, from $24.99
Traditional Taurus values luxury and careful craftsmanship over flash-in-the-pan trends. A solid maple tray is a dependable, multifunctional piece that’ll fit right into their classic aesthetic.

Gemini (May 22 – June 21)

Mountain peak bookends by Hachi and Tegs, $51.71
These mountain peak bookends are technically for kids, but they shouldn’t be the only ones allowed to have fun. This witty pair provides the perfect way for quick-thinking Gemini to store their tomes.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Handmade triangle shelf by Dark Marquee Designs, $90
A shadow box is right up Cancer’s alley: It’s a place where sentimental, homebody crabs can display their keepsakes. A handmade wooden shelf is a lovely spot for their treasures.

Leo (July 23 – Aug 21)

Vintage pink sofa from Vintage Supply, $1900
No other sign has such a flair for the dramatic—Leo loves to make a statement. This fire-colored vintage sofa is an appropriate throne for their regal selves.

Virgo (Aug 22 – Sep 23)

Pyramid glass terrarium by Noja Glass Design, $82.42
This glass terrarium is an elegant way for organized Virgos to store and display their jewelry. Its crisp lines will appeal to their love of order (and perfectionist tendencies).

Libra (Sep 24 – Oct 23)

Pressed-flower wall hanging by Kmpressed, $26
The romantic of the Zodiac, Libra values beauty and serenity in whatever surrounds them. These hand-pressed flowers, contained in a delicate copper frame, will make Libra feel loved.

Scorpio (Oct 24 – Nov 22)

Modern pendant light by Photonic Studio, $199
Known for being strong-willed (and okay, sometimes a little intense), Scorpio needs decor options that can stand up to their boldness. With its ultra-clean lines, this midcentury-inspired light fixture isn’t messing around.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 – Dec 22)

Vintage pull-down map from Microscope Telescope, $195
Free-spirited, fun-loving Sags are natural born travelers, always fantasizing about skipping town to go exploring. A vintage Dutch school map will get them inspired for their next adventure.

Capricorn (Dec 23 – Jan 20)

Rustic plate self-adhesive wallpaper by DecoWorks, from $68
They can be charmingly old-school in their style, but that’s often a good thing: Reliable Capricorns know what they like. Wallpaper printed with vintage plates is a fresh take on a sensible classic.
